techzone: We all believe that open source is associated with free, as in free speech, software. As a layman, I started thinking about the sanity of people who work so hard to produce such quality software products and then allow anyone to simply download and use them for free. What the heck!! Where the hell do they make money ?? How can so many people simply be doing charity ??
zdnet: While there has been some controversy over whether LTSP support would be added to SUSE’s so-called EduCD, to be distributed with their fourth quarter version 10.3 release, a wide variety of software slated for inclusion in their education-centered set of add-ons is now available for download and testing.
linux.com: Most Web publishing systems on the market can automatically generate RSS feeds, but there are situations where you might want to have fine-grained control over your RSS feeds. For example, you might want to provide alternative RSS item descriptions, or to manually select which RSS items to publish.
the Inquirer: GOOD NEWS is never late, so it's nice to note that The Linux Fund relaunched last month just before the Open Source Convention OSCON in Portland, Oregon.
beconfused.com/blog: Finally I got some time away from my work and I decided to explore something new. I decided to install Ubuntu. I am familiar with Windows and the Mac but I haven’t really touched Ubuntu. So I shrink my Windows Vista partition by 60 GB and throw in Ubuntu to dual-boot.
masuran.org: Yesterday I installed Debian Lenny on one of my workstations to give it a try. Ever since I tried Ubuntu I've been in love with it, but you all know how love can be blinding So trying a new distribution every now and then is a good idea. Ubuntu is based on Debian, so I wanted to see where the latest version of Debian differed from the latest Ubuntu release.
This article shows how you can build your own video community using lighttpd with its mod_flv_streaming module (for streaming .flv videos, the format used by most major video communities such as YouTube) and its mod_secdownload module (for preventing hotlinking of the videos).
manilastandardtoday: WHEN I switched from Windows to Linux last year, a decision I had to make as a technology writer was what to do with readers who were still on Microsoft’s proprietary operating system.
matt hartley: I hear the argument everyday. That somehow, any open source project must not be very good because it does not cost anything to use it.
drupal.org: Aug 20, 2007 marked the end of the 2007 Google Summer of Code. Below is a table of this year's students, their projects, along with links to download and (where available) try them out. Please help test and provide feedback!
opensuse news: Today we are taking a look at the new One-Click Install technology which aims to simplify package management for users. We will see how this is integrated into the openSUSE Build Service and we’ll have a talk with Benjamin Weber, the original author and maintainer of One-Click Install.
iTWire: The topic of Linux on the desktop is one that raises its head every couple of days somewhere on the web - and here it is again. Windows use is also a habit - it is developed in the kindergarten, continues in school, goes with you to college and then into the workplace.
arstechnica: The first beta release of GNOME 2.20 was announced late last week. According to the release schedule, the second beta release will occur on August 29.
/home/liquidat: Mickael Marchand created a branch in KDE SVN to work on a KDE configuration storage system based SQL. This picks up the idea to have more ways in KDE to store the configuration than just having the file based way.
lo-fi-librarian.co.uk: As much as my general first impressions were positive, I must admit I wasn’t too impressed on the look of the default Ubuntu. If you’re used to something a bit more shiny, like Vista for example, you might be disappointed.
blogbeebe: It had to happen sooner or later. Over the weekend I finally upgraded my Gateway M685 to openSuse 10.2. I'd already done this with the older M680, and it had gone surprisingly well.
PR: Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, announced today that it has joined the UK's trade association for the Open Source industry, the Open Source Consortium (OSC). The OSC is currently calling for platform independence for the BBC's iPlayer.
Carla Schroder: Since our previous peek at the state of wireless networking in Linux, which is moving forward in an excellent fashion, the new unified Linux wireless stack (mac80211) has been accepted into the mainline 2.6.22 kernel. This is the new common base for all Linux wireless drivers.
lxpages: Sometimes you may find yourself working with hundreds or thousands of files which need to have extension removed or just changed say from .htm to .html or .php to .html for some reason. Well.. since I know you’d someday come across such an issue, we’ve put together a couple of tips that you may find helpful.
